Curious-looking AMD Ryzen 7 Extreme Edition with 4.30 GHz Boost Hits the Radar

Hot on the heels of the Ryzen 7 4700G desktop APU reveal, a curious-looking processor reared its head on the Futuremark Database, named "AMD Ryzen 7 Extreme Edition," as unearthed by Thai PC enthusiast TUM_APISAK, who mentions that the chip is "Renoir" based, and likely a mobile part owing to its rather low nominal clock speed of 1.80 GHz, which can boost all the way up to 4.30 GHz. The chip has all 8 cores and 16 threads enabled.

Coming back to its clock speeds, the "Extreme Edition" appears to be a 100 MHz speed bump over the Ryzen 7 4800U, a 15-Watt part with 4.20 GHz max boost. The 45-Watt Ryzen 7 4800H has the same 4.20 GHz boost clock, but much higher 2.90 GHz nominal clocks. It hence stands to reason that this is a 15 W segment part, topping the 4800U, targeting ultraportables. Interestingly, a 15-Watt Renoir with these clock speeds was recently reported as the "Ryzen 9 4900U." We'll hear more in the coming weeks.

Somehow I get the impression AMD might pull a 'but this one goes up to eleven' stunt. We already have Ryzen 9... just watch them. 11 isn't far off and they have a reason to market higher core counts soon. It also fits in the ongoing trend of AMD copying nomenclature from the market leader.

Will Intel counter that with an i11? Looks pretty ridiculous :)

Yeah, isn’t “Extreme Edition” an Intel thing?

Intel needs a new naming scheme. the iSeries followed C2D/C2Q. 10900K doesnt roll off the tongue easily and i doubt an i11 11900k is going to either or whatever they decide to call it. (assuming they would even do an i11)

True. The way I see it, they will change it when they have something worthy of a new name. Comet Lake is not.

The 4800H and HS are already dominating Intel's just released 14nm processors, this will just add insult to Intel's injury.

Then there's the 4900H as well. Too bad Intel is dominating the gaming laptop market.

I'm impressed that an 8C 15 W beats a 6C 45 W.

Not enough money for marketing so they are, once again, making knockoffs of Intel’s product names to attract attention. I thought they changed their ways after dumping the x399 name for TRX40. Well here are again with AMD acting like a cheap knockoff.

Easy now.
This isn't confirmed yet.

Objectively, I don't see anything wrong using this naming convention though. There is no patent as such to say that nobody should use this naming convention. And in this case, the cheap knockoff is knocking or already knocked Intel off.
